The Belt of the a/c to the solenoid pulley is creating the noise.
So while the care makes the noise pour some water into the belt and the noise will subside. the it is confirmed.
Stop the engine and check for play in the belt if so tighten the belt If not use some chalk power or candle wax to be rrubbed into the belt that was making the noise - the a/c drive belt - .
Now start and check . the nosie would be reduced or gone.
Replace the belt sooner or later.

manually see if you can turn the power steering pump, water pump, alternator or ac pulley
the squeal may be a slipping belt form a seized unit

Squealing


Bearings often will calm down with noise after they get hot. Just because the idler bearings, belt may be new it could still be a bearing in an alternator, AC, power steering, ect.

Can't find the source of the squeal


Year make and model ??
The belt could be glazed and slipping even if it is tight.
You could have a weak belt tensioner too.
The noise when the ac or heat is turned on can be the extra load from the ac compressor or the alternator. The compressor cycles on and off especially in defrost mode.
The load from the alternator is the first noise of the day. As the belt warms up it becomes better at handling the load of the accessories.
Even tho the belt looks fine, you may have to replace it to get rid of the noise.

1999 Chrysler Concorde A/C Squeal and Overheating


THE SQUEAL IS PROBABLY COMING FROM THE A/C COMPRESSOR CLUTCH IF IT IS NOT LOCKED IN WHEN THE A/C IS TURNED ON IT WILL RUB AND SQUEAL. I WOULD CHECK AND MAKE SURE YUR COOLING FANS ARE COMING ON WHEN THE CAR A/C IS TURNED ON ALSO BECAUSE THAT WILL CAUSE IT TO OVER HEAT.

My 1997 subaru impreza squeals badly and then engine smokes


Hi this sounds weird does the smoke come out from the front engine covers? the squealing could be the cambelt trying to turn a semi or completly ceased waterpump which would cause the smoke after a while, also without the waterpump working properly the engine will leak water and anti freeze out the overflow and overheat really quickly

Sounds like the belt is just too loose or the belt might be wore out. when it slips it squeals. when you turn on your A/C it slips alot more making it squeal louder. Hope this helps...

Help! Air conditioner causes squeal soon after turned on


The ac is belt driven, If one of the belts are loose it will make a squealing noise. Turning on the air puts more strain on the belts. If this is the case all you would have to do is tighten the belt or belts. This would probably take a service tech just a few minutes. Probably under $100.00 dollars..........
